Songs from the I.V.

by Plaid Pantry Project

David Bowie, The Cars and Guided By Voices had an analog baby. This is their baby. Recorded in a closet, a Corvette and a shower with two mic's into a vintage Reel to Reel analog tape recorder. Cool as you're going to find from Portland Oregon. Legit.

Album Notes
"Thankfully, this album is devoid of Portland Hipster, Alt-Rock Pretentiousness. It actually rocks."

The latest album 'Songs from the I.V.’ Written through chemotherapy and a turbulent US election / inauguration period from Nov 2016 to January 2017. The results are reflective of the general mood and tenor of the country. The album was recorded in a much different approach than recent alt-rock contemporaries. The album was intentionally recorded lo-fi on a Teac 80-8 Reel-to-Reel analog tape machine. No computer recording/digital processing was used. Two microphones recorded the drums in a hall closet. Guitar parts were recorded with the amplifiers located in a 1970's Corvette Stingray to give the feeling of the albums from the 60's-80's which were primarily listened to while driving in American sedans of the period. The resulting sounds are remarkably honest, full and dynamic.
"Plaid Pantry Project, or simply referred to as "Plaid" is the musical work of Andy Pribal. Plaid is simply a collection of songs created, written by and recorded by Andy himself. Andy is quite possibly one of Portland Oregon’s most prolific songwriters, multi-instrumentalist, and wildly talented musicians. Playing all of the instruments himself, one can see how quickly he dives into an idea, without hesitation of compromise. It's really fascinating to watch him work. Not to mention, he is extremely humorous and insightful."
The Name "Plaid Pantry Project" - Plaid Pantry is a convenience store chain located in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. Although there is no direct correlation between the convenience store chain and the Plaid Pantry Project, the CEO/President of the corporation and Andy have even partnered for a series of projects. Quite possibly one of the most unique stories in Rock and Roll history. Read on...
The Artist Andy Pibal (aka Pribhol, Pribal) entered the music-realm in 1988 as the drummer to the experi-metal, post-punk rock, Portland quartet “Forehead” (1988-1995) on Urge PoundHouse records (owned by Nike Executives at the height of the NW Grunge Movement. As a side project during this time of the Northwest musical renaissance of the early 1990’s, Andy began recording a series of albums under the lighthearted moniker of “The Plaid Pantry Project.” Writing all of the songs, playing drum tracks, bass, guitars, piano & vocal tracks himself gives artistic freedom which allow the songs to come out as freely as they were written. Having been labeled as "one of the best drummers in Portland" Andy never shies away from putting a percussive edge on his guitar & bass playing as well as his vocal delivery & style.
Long-time Northwest residents may remember the short-lived co-op between the actual Plaid Pantry corporation convenience store chain (when approached for Trademark & name use rights and Andy). This odd marriage led to one of the most unbelievable stories in Rock & Roll history, and it happened right here in Portland Oregon.

The sound of Plaid: Imagine Ric Ocasek producing “Ride the Lightning” for Robert Pollard & David Bowie, or something close to this. Guitar rock? Yes, to some degree. Can you sing along to it? Most definitely. It's legit, thought provoking and honest.
